Onsite COVID Testing

Blue Oak Charter School is now providing optional, drop-in COVID testing on campus once a week for all Blue Oak staff, students, and parents who are interested. The tests administered on campus are PCR tests with a promised turnaround time of 48 hours.

Testing will take place every Tuesday from 8:30AM to 11:30AM in Room 21 until further notice.

Please check in with the Front Desk if you need directions. Testing is on a drop-in basis, no appointment needed. However, you do need to complete the one-time registration link below for yourself or any individual taking a test on campus. You will not be able to take the test if you are not registered. 

Take home test kits may be available for staff and students only as well. Please contact our Health Aide, Kayla Mahanay, to see if your student is eligible for a take home test kit or for any other testing related questions.
